"Dear Mr Bez, please find attached some scanned pedigrees, pictures and some dog show results. Thank you for your efforts." – We like to help, but unfortunately we can not spend the effort to extract the data of single dogs from pedigrees and enter them in the Database. There are about 60.000 Briards in this Database and every year 5.000 new are added. If it took us only one minute per entry, this would be more than four days work around the clock...

For this reason we equipped the Database with tools that allow you to prepare all changes on your own. We just have to review and to release them. (But please note: All changes will undergo a plausibility check before they are published.)

  1. Add an entry: On the Database portal page, under the headline "Submit your information", you find a button "Create new entry". When you press this you are forwarded to a data entry form. Please double check the digits you entered as spam protection key before you finish your input.

  2. Add a new kennel entry: On the Database portal page, under the headline "Submit your information", you find a button "Create new kennel entry". You are forwarded to the respective entry form.

  3. Change an entry: Search for the dog you want to change, for example by entering a significant part of its name in the input field under the headline "Search". When you found the pedigree page for the dog, press the button "Edit entry" in the upper right of the screen. You will see a pre-filled input form where you can add, change or delete as desired.

  4. Change a kennel entry: In a similar way you get to the kennel detail page. In the upper right of the screen you see a button "Change entry".

  5. Add or change a picture: On the pedigree page, press "Add picture" or "Change picture", respectively. You can then upload a picture from your computer.

  6. Please read here how you can add dog show results to the Database.

It is a different thing when you provide a printed stud book volume. In this case we do of course the electronic data acquisition. Stud books are organised in a way that we can extract the relevant data of complete litters easily and efficiently.
